Newport/Northeast About To Nailed By Massive Snowstorm, 1 Ft+ Expected

By  |  0 Comments

Newport, Rhode Island and the rest of New England are about to get hit by a massive snowstorm Monday night.

Newport has done a good job of dodging the worst of the snow that has hit New England this year…but it looks like our luck is about to run out. Winter storm Quinn, as it has been named by the folks over at The Weather Channel, is going to hit us hard. Snow is expected to start around 10pm Monday night and will continue until roughly 6pm on Tuesday. Current predictions have Newport getting 14″ of snow, though the range is 12″-18″.
